NSW Premier Dominic Perrottet insists he and Chief Health Officer Dr Kerry Chant have a great working relationship and that she endorses his roadmap changes – despite her noticed absence from a media conference on Thursday.

It comes as Mr Perrottet announced a raft of changes to the NSW roadmap at a media conference on Thursday.

In a robust exchange – Mr Perrottet made it clear to journalists, as the new premier his style and approach will be different – most notably in his decision to scrap the daily 11am COVID press conference for an online update at 9am.

The premier also defended against a grilling by journalists for not having any NSW Health representatives present at the media conference – given COVID is a health crisis.

“It’s also an economic crisis as well,” Mr Perrottet said.

“We’re the elected officials.

“And styles might be different and changes get made – but in my view, we had a very constructive discussion last night and as the health minister has said, these changes are supported by the health team.”
